The UFC returns to T-Mobile Arena tonight for UFC 245. The ESPN+ streaming pay-per-view card features three title fights at the top of the card, which is the UFC’s final PPV event of 2019.
In UFC 245’s main event, Kamaru Usman puts his welterweight crown on the line against former-interim champion Colby Covington, who is the No. 2 ranked 170-pound fighter according to the official UFC rankings. In the co-main event, featherweight titleholder Max Holloway faces No. 1 ranked contender Alexander Volkanovski. Before those two contests, two-division women’s champion Amanda Nunes matches up against ex-women’s featherweight champ Germaine de Randamie in a bantamweight scrap. De Randamie is ranked No. 1 in the women’s 135-pound weight class.
The five-fight main card also features ex-featherweight champion Jose Aldo dropping to bantamweight for the first time in his career. Aldo, who is ranked No. 3 at 145 pounds, faces ex-WSOF bantamweight champion Marlon Moraes, who is ranked No. 1 at 135 pounds.
UFC 245 takes place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on ESPN+ streaming pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN2 and early prelims on UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+.
Following the main event, the UFC will hold the post-fight press conference for the fight card. The competitors from the three title fights, as well as other main card fighters, are expected to spend some time with the media after the headline bout ends.
The post-fight press conference is expected to begin around 1:15 a.m. ET.
